Not one of the safeties I was looking at, but no complaints there.

Vikings stole Clemmings

I love my picks (Vikes). Waynes, Kendricks, now Clemmings. Hunter seems like a good pick too.

Next year I'm going to pressure the staff to do something about this. I meant to this season but never did. There should be a rule that if you participate in the draft thread and you spoil a pick, you get temp suspended for 24 hours.

The best thing to ever happen to draft coverage is when ESPN decided not to tip off the picks. It made the draft enormously more enjoyable.

I was absolutely furious Thursday night when several members here spoiled our 1st round pick before it was announced. I mean I was freakin' irate, I damn near crashed this server with a curse laden tirade that even the devil himself would've been embarrassed to hear.

Next year, I think several of us need to lobby for some control of this. I didn't even participate in the official draft thread last night because of this.

That's just dumb, sorry but it's not the life altering catastrophe you are making it out to be. Also I was the one spoiling things so call me out by name. It's not against the rules and I did it all of 5 times, one of which was for the Colts pick. Start a spoiler free thread of it's such a big deal. You can't limit free speech and access to non-controversial public information.

    • Hmm, my only question is if they test everyone for COVID before entering the building (and I presume they use hand sanitizer also?), then isn't all the other precautionary measures redundant?
    • I wouldn't go that far.....  
    • And I do respect and support it, doesn't mean I have to understand it because we have to face the fact that we can't isolate ourselves for months or years and that we can't avoid the risk of getting infected. Regardless of whether you are going to the supermarket or meeting with your family there are things you have to do and there is no 100% safety out there. You said it yourself: So many opportunities to get infected. Not only on the field or the football bubble but in real life that we simply can't avoid.    And If Joe Nobody can go to the office every day I think a football player can go on the field. And as I mentioned a football field is a much safer environment than an office with tests on a regular basis it's probably one of the safest places especially if they play the games without spectators. They say that it takes at least 15 minutes of realy close contact to an infected person to infect yourself in a closed room. And there are a lot of measures to minimize the risk like a max number of people in the training room etc. And yes Corona is a serious virus I don't doubt that but it's not the killer virus that is threatening to exterminate humanity. What we are facing now and that is noboby talking about is that we are dying a slow and steady economic and social death! But thats just my two cents.
    • First, I’m not sure it’s known just how much time you have to be near an infected to actually become infected yourself.      Second,  think of football this way...  every huddle, and there roughly 65-70 of them each side, each game is an opportunity.  Each play and tackle is an opportunity.   Every time a player goes in the team complex is an opportunity.   Every time you’re in the locker room, the weight room, the team meeting room, the positional meeting room, you name it, they are all opportunities.    There are so many different opportunities to get infected.     Plus, you talk about young people...   those people have their entire career in front of them.  The longer this drags out the more we learn that we don’t know as much as we thought we did.  That even when you’re Covid free many still report issues with their heart and lungs.  That’s not good for anyone,  especially athletes.  Young athletes are trying to protect their careers.    These decisions are complex, but you have to respect and support every decision,  no matter which way it goes. 
    • I respect there decision but don't understand it. Why? Athletes get tested on a regular basis, they can wear helmets with a faceshield, we know that u need to spend considerable time very close to a infected person to get infected yourself and they play outside where the risk isn't that big anyway. So athletes are probably the most safe persons in this pandemic. If others can do their daily work athletes can do it too.
